Keeping Your Head After Losing Your Job : How to survive unemployment, Paperback / softback Book

Keeping Your Head After Losing Your Job : How to survive unemployment Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


Although the current economic crisis creates a sense of urgency, we have always had and will always have a large number of people who are unemployed.

For many, it is the most difficult time that they have ever faced.

Without help, the unemployed face an increased risk of binge drinking, depression, anxiety and suicide.

For many, there is a decreased quality of mental health, life satisfaction and objective physical wellbeing.

Most feel alone and helpless. Dr Robert Leahy has worked with many unemployed people over the years, examining the psychological consequences of unemployment and exploring ways to help people cope with the emotional fallout of losing their job.

This book gives readers psychological tools to handle their period of unemployment and simple, self-help strategies that can be used immediately to help them feel better and act better.

The book draws on cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) as well as practices such as mindfulness to help readers boost their self-esteem and confidence, decrease anxiety and feelings of helplessness, and develop resiliance and strength going forward.
